Simply Recipes Apple Turnovers
We had a yummy breakfast treat, Apple Turnovers! I love these, and always have, and this recipe was easy and great. Owen gave them an 8, and Noah and I gave them a 9. The calories per pastry were 300, and we made 6 pastries. I used the frozen puff pastry dough, because I had some and it's a lot easier than making my own ;). We found the recipe at Simply Recipes, a great resource for recipes. Anyway, here's how I made the recipe.
2 small granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
3 T cherry flavored Craisins
1/4 c sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
1/2 t cornstarch
1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
1/4 t vanilla
1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
2 T butter, cut into small pieces
1 T sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 400 and put oven rack in the bottom third of the oven. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside. Mix together the apples, Craisins, sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch. Add in the vanill and applesauce. Roll out the puff pastry, and then cut it in desired number of pastries. Place apple filling in the middle of each square, and add butter pieces to it. Fold the pastry square into a triangle, press sides together, and sprinkle top with sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffy and golden.
